On the Move

In Uncategorized on July 1, 2010 at 4:23 pm

I doubt I have a good following yet, but in case anyone were worried, panicked, scared, or in a fit of chaos, I haven’t gone anywhere. Far. That almost seems to sum up my life until this point. But to get right to it, I’ve moved. Moving is one of those aching sores that only seem to heal with time and lots and lots of alcohol, rubbing and distilled. Suffice to say I’ve just about finished. The desk and computer are up, the internet is at a decent speed, and perhaps the greatest perk of all is that no one can bother me. Don’t bother me.

SO! Up to date. I’m steadily working on some more book reviews in the next couple months. I have three books, no, four books I’m going to be reviewing on the site by August. One of them is one that I’ve picked out, the others have been assigned. My leisure book of the…well, you might call it book of the month since it’s taken me as long to read, is The Echo Maker by Richard Powers. Powers’s writing style kind of mimics Stephen King’s in a way, but I won’t say more than that because this is an update.

I’m going to be working on my site, finally! Let’s just say a whole new kind of bum is emerging that’s going to work on her bummish tendencies. I’ve decided that since the site is entitled “book bum”, everything is going to be strictly bummish. Not extraordinarily literary per se. It’s going to be a site for bums who like to read, instead of frolicking in the thicket of  video game chords or blogging about their own personal discomfort. The reviews are going to be short. Here they’ll be long winded, because it’s a book blog and yeah ok it makes sense. But I want to branch out and try something different. The book bum site is going to be quirky and I wish I had more time to talk about it. I’m actually running a little late. I’ve got 13 hours of work ahead of me, so some of this stuff I’ll be working on late into the night. As of right now, I’m on the move.
